      They should change it to:
      Operators are exposed to certain environmental conditions and surroundings:
      -Sitting in a van defenseless while angry motorists attempt to physically harm them or the van
      -Impersonating police personnel
      -Being filmed while working

      Also notice how this is phrased:
      “Testifies in court (when necessary) that the equipment was tested and in proper working order and therefore, the captured violation is accurate and prosecutable.”

      What if it wasn’t? Does this mean the job requirement is to testify that it was working regardless of the truth?

    Reviewed by a cop?

    Just like someone at redflex “reviewed” 500 speeding tickets… and then sent out red light cam tix.

    What a joke

  4. TicketKick says:

    All in all red light cameras are a scam. California citizens are constantly getting “short yellow” tickets.

  5. Anonymous says:

    This company is a scam. If I was given a ticket and I am in a funeral procession, I’ll tell both the cops and courts to kiss my grits and I would not pay.

    Someone needs to knock those cameras off the poles.
